bicarbonate / alkaline buffer
When we say that
we alkalize our body, we don’t necessarily mean increasing our saliva pH or
urine pH over the 7.4 required for good body balance; it means increasing
the “bicarbonates” in our blood. The blood pH does not
change, but the ability of our blood to neutralize acid in the body
increases. Water, carbon dioxide and sodium chloride produce hydrochloric
acid and sodium bicarbonate.
acid is produced by the body as a result of drinking the high alkaline
water, from our “Aging Younger” water ionizer and as it goes into the
stomach, sodium bicarbonate is created by that process and the sodium
bicarbonate moves into the bloodstream.
bicarbonate is an alkaline buffer in our blood. In our
blood, there are alkaline buffers and acid buffers, constantly monitoring
the blood pH to maintain a constant blood pH of 7.4 in our body.
When the blood
becomes too alkaline, the acid buffers work to bring the pH down; and when
the blood becomes too acid, the alkaline buffers work to raise the pH.
In 1996 Dr. Lynda
Frassetto at the University of California, San Francisco, discovered that as
we age, starting around age 45, we lose the alkaline buffer – bicarbonates -
in our blood.
amounts of bicarbonates in our blood reduces our capability to manage,
neutralize and dump the acid waste that our body produces. This is the “cause
of aging”. The age of 45, is the average age when human beings start to
show symptoms of diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis and many other adult
Remember the High
mountainous range inhabitants of places in the world like the Himalayas, who
routinely live to be 100 years old and some to be 120 years old? The link
that was discovered to help them live so long was the water they consumed.
It was high alkaline water from the glaciers. These people did not suffer
from our diseases like diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis and many other
adult degenerative diseases.
People living and
working in all of the lower areas of the world, exist in a polluted
environment and have less bicarbonates in their blood than people working
and living in a clean environment. So what we do to our environment is a big
factor and leads to yet another reason for drinking our ionized water.
